Monday 12-February-2024


As the US-backed Israeli genocidal war on the Gaza Strip entered day 129 on Monday, massive aerial and artillery strikes continued to pound neighborhoods, homes and shelter centers and massacre more civilians, mostly children and women.

A reporter for the Palestinian Information Center (PIC) said that the Israeli occupation army continued to attack different areas of Gaza, mainly Rafah, killing and injuring hundreds of citizens.

According to media sources, two female journalists identified as Alaa al-Hams (Sanad News Agency) and Angham Adwan (Libya’s February channel) were martyred following Israeli attacks on homes in Rafah and Jabalia, while another journalist identified as Mohamed Shanyura was martyred in an aerial attack on a house in Tal al-Hawa neighborhood in Gaza City.

Israeli snipers also killed seven civilians and injured 14 medical workers and displaced citizens inside the Nasser Hospital’s courtyards.

Meanwhile, the Israeli army used drones to order the displaced families sheltering in schools near the Nasser Hospital in Khan Yunis to evacuate and move eastwards.

Another Israeli attack on a house in al-Brouk neighborhood in Deir al-Balah City, central Gaza, claimed the lives of at least 15 civilians, while a number of citizens were wounded in airstrikes on other areas of the city.

In the past few hours, spokesman for the health ministry Ashraf al-Qudra reported that at least 67 martyrs, including many kids and women, had been evacuated to hospitals as a result of relentless Israeli attacks on homes and mosques in Rafah.

The attacks on Rafah also injured at least 230 other civilians, while many others are still being buried under the rubble of buildings.

Other casualties were reported in different areas of Gaza following Israeli aerial, artillery and shooting attacks last night and today.
